8:01 am
ukraine shaky. >> a look at ebola i'm phil lavelle in hollywood. we don't have long to wait to see who won what. the question asked by some - who do the award really represent? the syrian government has condemned a turkish military operation into morne syria, calling it an act of flagrant aggression. hundreds of turkish soldiers were to move an otto man tomb given to turkey in 1921. damascus said it was informed but did not give its permission. bernard smith has the details from istanbul under the cover the night the turkish military crossed the border into syria. moving through territory controlled by i.s.i.l. they were headed to a piece of turkish soil the size of a
8:02 am
football pitch. the tomb of suleman was left under turkish control when the french drew the borders in 1921. suleman was the first otto man shrine. they stationed 40 or so troops at the shrine. >> translation: turkish troops entered with armoured vehicles and soldiers. 2230 g.m.t. our troops reached suleyman completed the mission and a ceremony was held. >> reporter: smim tapiously the -- simultaneously the turkish flag will be planted. it's still in syria, but only just. the spot is up against the border.
8:03 am
within sight of turkey's military. by dawn the operation was over. the government said it was done without coordination of syrian kurds, who control the border. nor was the syrian government in damascus involved. the turkish government that is no appetite to involve the military in the war in syria. it may have needed to pull the troops out of the shrine to avoid the risk that i.s.i.l. attack them forcing turkey's hand. it comes as turkey and the u.s. agreed to train the free syrian army fighters the first time they agreed to take an overt role in the battle against i.s.i.l. i'm joined in london by a former brigadier general in the turkish army. as bernard said the turkish government doesn't seem to have appetite to engage in syria. ar what the syrians are
8:04 am
announcing as blatant aggression, and them saying there'll be repercussion how is it developing. will there be an escalation here? >> i don't think so. i don't know how, and based on what syrian government is calling this an aggression. if there is any aggression the syrian territory is address by other actors for a long time. what i can call the turkish operation, well planned, well executed. it was a sad accident in the which the turkish ncos were killed in action this is an indication of the determination not to get involved in the turkish syrian war.
8:05 am
>> if the syrians retaliate as they threaten to because they say they didn't give permission for turkey to enter syrian territory, the turks will have no choice but to get involved further, wouldn't they? >> i don't think this will ever happen. the syrian regime syrian government is too careful, too experienced. i don't think any retaliation could come from the syrian side. regarding the permission - the turkish government - it's clear, i'm talking based on the press release by the foreign ministry that the turkish government informed the syrian government and if syria expected a delay of the operation by turkey waiting for permission they are
8:06 am
expecting too much from turkey. >> i wonder why now. the turkish government until now had been reluctant to intervene in syria, they were under pressure to help the turkish forces in kobane. they intervened then. there'd been threats in the past. i.s.i.l. made threats. why intervene now? >> the situation, the two situations, kobane and this one is completely different. kobane was an incident beyond turkish incident and borders. the operation was executed to in a sense, to extract turkish military from a very serious threat. i mean turkey had to conduct this operation, and there is a
8:07 am
sound international law basis which is 1921 ankara agreement in this respect. any intervention on the turkey side in kobane case was illegal from international low perspective. the recent operation to extract the military from the tom was completely legal. which the syrians are denouncing and saying is illegal. >> of course. >> thank you for taking the time to speak to us. former brigadier general in the turkish military thanks for your time. >> ukranian forces and pro-russian separatists agreed to pull back heavy weapons from the front line on sunday. both sides have a 2-week period to withdraw their arms part of a wider ceasefire agreement signed last week. those suffering at the heart of the violence in debaltseve say promises have been broken. paul brennan is there, reporting

8:09 am
because houses have been destroyed. are they receiving help assistance. are you getting humanitarian aid? >> nothing. i have not received anything. no humanitarian aid, nothing. >> the residents emotions swing between bitter resentment and tearful despair. many have not had water supplies. all desperate. the man in the middle of the crowd is not distributing aid. he is appealing for calm. authorities, the donetsk people's republic are yet to address. the man from donetsk promises that help is on its way. >> translation: we will accept help from whoever can provide it. yesterday eight planes landed. a humanitarian convoy. 10 trucks with 110 tonnes of food stuff, especially for the
8:10 am
people a fact finding group from the n.g.o. doctors without borders arrived. they haven't set up a medical facility. residents that fled to the sell areas to caep -- cell areas to escape the shelling have nowhere to go back to. when the conflict erupted, this woman hoped to finish college. she has no hope. >> there is a war going op brother is killing brother. how many innocent people have been killed. how much children have died. it's impossible to see that without weeping. only those that experience these things can know how i feel. there is nothing more terrifying in the whole world than this war. and people need to find a way to survive.
8:11 am
>> an effective ceasefire in ukraine is the first small step to normality. conflict caused mental and psychological pain as deep as the hurt as ukrainians in the east deal with the violence people in kiev remember another event a year ago. foreign dignitaries have been at the site. this was in relation to a battle leading to the ousting of president viktor yanukovych. we'll cross to jonah hull in kiev for us. as the anniversary event take place where you are, there's news of violence in the east. what are you hearing? >> yes, that's right. in the last hour reports coming in of an explosion in the eastern city of kharkiv, that have killed according to
8:12 am
reports, two people possibly three. causing a number of injuries. a prosperous city in the east. it hasn't been involved in the fighting. it's not part of the luhansk or donetsk. people republics in kharkiv. we understand it was a piece march not dissimilar when we see an explosive device thrown into the crowd from a passing car. a march taking place in kiev marking the anniversary of the protests a year ago. we can talk about the situation that ukraine finds itself in an i can't remember later. i'm joined by the british ambassador to ukraine's simon smith. thank you for joining us here. you were tape along with other officials to see captured armaments said to be russian, material evidence of involved in the east. it's on public display.
8:13 am
there seems to be no doubt that the country is at war from russia. >> i think the selection of weapons and technology on the square is a comparatively smaller sample of what has been evidence, and what that told us is that the separatist militant effort could not have been sustained without significant help in technical terms and personal terms and in terms of supplies of weapons, training and guidance from russia. >> there is an accuracy forward in pleas. albeit a shaky one now. there's a massive uptick in the rhetoric from the president and others blaming russia for the shooting on the square. is it helpful. >> what it sounds like is the rhetoric is sustained. it's been a point made here for
8:14 am
some time that it is - very few people here need convincing of russian support, the significant russian support that has been provided to the separatist militants. in that sense, i think, the perception has been well en entrenched for a long time that this is a sustained event. >> what is the consensus in the international community about what happiness if the ceasefire fails. >> at first, we are determined to do what we can to see that the ceasefire sticks. there have been some modestly positive developments over the past 24 hours or so with the indications that preparations are now being made to implement the first measures agreed under the ceasefire, with the withdrawal of heavy weapons, it's something that is a fair
8:15 am
prospect. after a bad first couple of days it looks like things may be about to move in a better direction. we want the ceasefire toistically. if it doesn't. we'll need to see clearly who is responsible for not implementing the ceasefire. it's a strong impression that the ukranian government has no interest in violating the caest ceasefire. if we see evidence of the violations on the separatist side. we'll need to move quickly to show that there are serious consequences. as i say we the british government, needs no convincing that this is a military effort on the part of separatists that could not have happened without significant support, and we'll demonstrate that if that support for militancy and conflict in the east of ukraine continues,
8:16 am
we'll demonstrate there is a cost to that. >> thanks for your time here on maidan independence square, where commemorations continue a year after protests led to the fall of the viktor yanukovych government. back to you. >> thank you. jonah hull reporting live from kiev now, some breaking news out of nigeria, and we are getting reports that a female suicide bomber killed five people and wounding dozens of others in the north-eastern nigerian town. this comes a week after another female suicide bomber killed 10 people also and nearby nigeria. the latest attack as a planned offensive is to be carried out by the regional force against the armed group boko haram next ponth. the french foreign minister is

8:19 am
about a president who is not legitimate counting on outsiders, foreigners. it is a southern secessionist movement. i don't understand what he's trying to accomplish by fleeing to the south. >> he pointed to an issue in the south, the fact that he did not broadcast a statement. it left many wondering if he's welcome by the powers that be. in the city. historically he's seen as a southern man who failed to do much in the south. he held the highest power in sapper. even his supporters were more confused after his statement, which failed to clarify whether his designation last month was final or whether he decided to continue in his post. he issued a statement with the list of demands. all decisions, political measures and appointments when
